African Wildlife Sanctuary

From AU$2095

What is Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary?

On this gap year program, you’ll have a rare opportunity to actively participate in the conservation, rehabilitation and research of African wildlife (leopards, cheetahs, baboons and yes, even the meerkat!). 

Is it made for me?

Love animals and dream of becoming the next David Attenborough? Look no further. Wake up to incredible African sunrises, walk with cheetahs, ride horses in the sanctuary and help out at the on-site school. You'll have a once in a life time experience with animals straight from the wild!

What will I do?

You will be an important resource in the daily care and feeding of the animals, as well as helping to maintain and develop the sanctuary. You will provide enrichment through animal interaction such as walks in the bush, intensive care for young wildlife, meal preparation and research activities. This is an exceptional opportunity to get hands on with African wildlife and many aspects of their care.

Where can I do it?

This program is located in Namibia, Africa with the option to combine time at one of two remote research sites in the south of the country monitoring large carnivores and other animals in the wild.

What will my experiences be?

Immerse yourself in an unfamiliar landscape and learn the appropriate methods of caring and feeding African wildlife. Return home with indescribable memories and a deeper understanding of how animals interact.

How is this good for me?

Interested in animal care or veterinarian science?  Build the foundations of your career through a hands-on experience in Africa. Or if you just love animals, your contribution to the project will make a huge difference to both the individual animal's lives and the projects conservation work!
